COVID-19 UPDATE (May 29, 2020)

  The Governor of Missouri has extended the current Missouri order to June 15th. This order provides that: every person & business in the State of Missouri shall abide by social distancing requirements, including maintaining six feet (6') of space between individuals. This provision shall not apply to family members or individuals performing job duties that require contact with other people closer than six feet (6'). Individuals performing job duties that require contact with other people closer that six feet (6') should take enhanced precautionary measures....

  The Missouri Order does not place any restriction on the numbers of people that can "gather" or attend an event. The order does state that businesses (under 10,000 square feet) that engage in "Retail Sales to the public" are limited to 25% of their buildings occupancy.

  This provision is directed to places like grocery stores or Wal-Mart, but there is no definition or clarification on "retail sales". Many businesses have products that a person can just walk-in off the street and purchase even if that is not their primary business. if this rule were to apply to all of those situations it would make much of the rest of the order meaningless.

  Therefore, at this point, there is no reason to believe that the statewide 25% would apply to funerals or visitations as, at a funeral or visitation, a funeral home is not engaging in retail sales. That, instead, should fall under the "gathering" language for which there is no limit.
